"Humor is a great way to lighten any atmosphere, and laughing is a surefire way to brighten your outlook."
There is something that appeals to me about the characteristics of a wolf. Do you think that strange? Let me explain.
Wolves Are Unique Animals
What is unique about them is that they mate for life, play on a daily basis with each other, and look after any sick members of the pack.
These special qualities reminded recently of a couple of people that I know who fit well into these qualities.
The people, of whom I speak, are often discounted by many of their friends of being way out there - they do not conform to the usual trappings of their friends, nor do they follow the beat of the drum that is prominent.
They dance to their own tune, and always find ways to engage in friendly banter, teasing each other in playful ways, and coming out of each with even more vitality than they started with.
A Story That Relates
Such was a day several years ago when the laundry needed to be done. While one was busy filling the wash machine, then taking the clean clothes out to be hung on the line to dry, the other was busy planning the next frivolous escapade.
Since the clothesline was right below a second story window, it only seemed natural to use this window as a mechanism to wreak havoc below.
So, as it was with many a day, one person, the male, got a bucket full of cold water, carried it to the second floor window, and proceeded to dump the entire bucket of water over his wife below who was totally oblivious to the cascading water until it hit her square in the head totally drenching her.
If your only could imagine what happened next would be food for a great sitcom but let me just say this: laughs from one turned to fright as he was chased continuously around the house and outside where she was more than capable of exacting her own revenge if she caught him. The final play ended with good laughs and funny memories.
This couple has continued to mirror some of the qualities of wolves over the many years including staying together, playing their own unique games, teasing, and looking after each other and their son in times of hardship, illness and setbacks.
But, through it all, they remain strong and committed just like wolves do. Is there something to be learned after all from the behavior of wolves and this couple?
Never Lose The Play in Life
For far too many of us, we seem to have lost the art of play as we move into our adult years.
We seem to forget that part of our humanity is taking time to engage in play and re-invigorate our own special qualities.
And, some of these qualities also mean that we look after our own family through all the strains, strife and turmoil that all comes our way during a lifetime.
Is it time, right now, to become wolf-like?
Do you know someone that needs a little motivation? A little inspiration?
